address president obama hit people on fighting to deregulate. right now it's my great pleasure to be joined by nobel prize winning economist, joseph stiglitz. the price of inequality, how today's divided society eng dangers our future. and joy reid. dedrick muhammad and msnbc contributor karen hunter formerly of the new york and daily news editorial board. now a distinguished lecturer at the film and lecture department at hunter college. mitt romney delivered what appeared to be a pretty stunning victory in the first presidential debate wednesday night. he did this by using a time tested tactic that came as a surprise because it usually happens during the conventions, moving to the middle. at times, romney even got to the left of the president simply by denying, disowning, or apparently abandoning many of the policies he has spent many of the last years competing with. if he was caught off guard on wednesday, by thursday they had adjusted to the new entrant in the race, romney 2.0. at a rally president obama marvelled at the new software upgrade. >> when i got on the stage i met this

, middle class americans, latino voters know that we're headed in the right direction and we need to continue moving forward. we can't afford to let mitt romney take us back. and beyond that, the obama campaign has a very serious ground game in those states you identified. we are going to be on the ground every day, knocking on doors, registering voters and getting them out to vote in states like iowa and ohio. we are already getting people to the polls. those states are voting now. and the dnc and obama for america has got a vote bus tour that is in ohio today that is encouraging people to vote early. so, we're going to bring them out. >> you say, though, that we're heading in the right direction. certainly it looks like that when you talk about the unemployment rate at 7.8%. it has dropped. but the real important number here is that 114,000 jobs that were added. this doesn't keep up, though, with the population growth. so, as far as you saying we're heading in the right direction, i mean, romney and other republicans say that's not enough and indicates how sluggish the economy actu

obama's watch. now of course unless you are a hard core right winger. according to them, these unemployment numbers, you know what they are? they are a conspiracy. they're a conspiracy to re-elect the president of the united states. >> there is widespread mistrust of this report and these numbers because there are clear contradictions. >> i guarantee when this is revised the unemployment rate would be back above 8%. >> oh, how convenient that the rate drops below 8% for the first time in 43 months five weeks before an election. >> i told you they'd get it under 8%. they did. >> a great argument. >> you can let america decide how they got it. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover up of the data. you are saying that the administration is actively manipulating that data, correct? >> well, absolutely. >> i want to remind you i have warned you this kind of thing is going to happen. the unemployment rate is going to drop. >> the insanity doesn't stop there. one conservative writer for the "washington examiner" said unemployment dropped because a b

more than obama. >> you know, what john just said is absolutely right. he had to get here. this is where american elections are fought, in the middle, the general election. what i don't understand is why he waited so long to do it. i don't why he didn't come out immediately after the republican primary, maybe even take on some of the tax loopholes, he says name a couple of them to prove he's going to stay on the side of the middle class. to find his entire life and now he's playing catch up. i'm not sure he has enough time. >> he's got a challenging -- pew survey found 85% of votes said it's more difficult now to maintain a standard of living and a "usa today" gallup poll before the debate said 53% think president obama will do better for them than mitt romney at 43%. how does he overcome that? >> i think wednesday night hit the restart button. they are ready to go. about a month to talk about his plan and i think what you saw on wednesday night, it wasn't the 30 second spots being defined by barack obama. it was mitt romney speaking unfiltered to voters for 90 seconds. he was in t
